This book is intended both for students preparing to teach and for all who are teaching English. It deals with the principles upon which effective teaching of English must rest. As these principles are much the same for primary work and for high school work, differing at these extremes in degree rather than in kind, the constant aim has been to make it of practical value to teachers in the grades, in junior high school and in high school; even its illustrative material has been chosen with these wide limits in mind. The book does not aim to present a definitely planned, carefully organized course of study for any special field, although definite references to such courses are given. Its purpose, rather, is to present a helpful study of fundamentals on which can be built really successful English teaching. This book will serve as an important resource for researchers, students, and teachers wishing to design a basic course in English teaching methodology.
